Configure ContentConnect Server Running Mode

Polycom ContentConnect server can work in two modes:

  • Gateway Mode: Lync clients don’t need to install the Polycom ContentConnect Add-on for Microsoft Lync Service for content sharing.

    ContentConnect server works as a RDP-BFCP content gateway, providing full transcoding between RDP and BFCP H264 content streams.

    ContentConnect server works as a VbSS-BFCP content gateway, providing full transcoding between VbSS and BFCP H.264 content streams.

  • Add-On Mode: All Lync clients must install the Polycom ContentConnect Add-on for Microsoft Lync Service for content sharing.

    The Add-on handles content sharing when there is legacy participant with BFCP content supported in the conference.

    In the Add-On Mode, the content media will be only BFCP H264 video stream and go through RealPresence Collaboration Server (RMX) directly from ContentConnect plugin.

  2. Select Gateway Mode.

    If you select this option and you have the Polycom ContentConnect Add-on for Microsoft Lync Service installed already, it will be disabled.
